Ohio State Student Farm

The Ohio State Student Farm is a 4-acre plot at the Waterman Agricultural and Natural Resources Laboratory. It is a space for Ohio State students of all identities and academic backgrounds to engage in learning, research, and collaborative projects. This space was created by students with the help of faculty of Horticulture and Crop Science and Engineering Education to empower themselves and future students to experience first-hand the present and future of sustainable agriculture and food justice. During the academic year, the Student Farm primarily operates as the Student Growing Collaborative. The SGC meets weekly for students to learn about and advocate for sustainable agriculture and food justice through workshops and events. This involves organizing educational events both for the Growing Collaborative itself and for the general student public.
